The first season of Canada's Got Talent, a reality television series, premièred on March 4, 2012 and ended on May 14, 2012 on City. Unlike America's Got Talent, the show only had the audition round, top 37, semi-finals, and then the finale. The premiere episode, which aired March 4, 2012, took in a viewership of 2 million on average throughout the night, a record for Citytv.
We kick off our Canada’s Got Talent tour in Toronto. Our host, Dina Pugliese, starts us off on a high note as the largest talent search in Canada begins. You’ll meet the incredible judges; Martin Short, Measha Brueggergosman, & Stephan Moccio.
After a great start in Toronto, our crew hit the road and headed out west to Calgary. As we entered Stampede City we had no idea what we would find, but we knew it would be unique.
Montreal's longstanding tradition of unique talent is on full display when host Dina Pugliese and judges Martin, Measha, and Stephan visit in the last of the audition episodes.
The wait is over! The judges choose their favourite acts from across Canada to advance to the semifinals.
The live shows start tonight. Our first performance shows will have performances from Wushu by Storm, Christopher Charles, Marissa Puff, Pulp City Inn, H.I.X, Julie Lafontaine, and Freshh.
It comes down to this. Who did the people pick? Who did the judges pick? Tune in and find out.
